Word 2013 Draft View Setting

Word 2013 Draft View Setting

Word Draft View

Many users like to work on their documents in Draft view.  If they work on a document in Draft view and save that document while working on it in Draft view, there’s a pretty good chance they want that document to open in Draft view the next time they access the document.  However, by default, Word isn’t setup to do this.  To enable this to happen:

    1. Select the File tab of the ribbon, and then select Options.
    2. Click the Advanced option at the left side of the dialog.
    3. Scroll down to General settings in the dialog box and make sure the Allow Opening a Document in Draft View option is set.

allowdraft

If you need to deploy this setting to multiple users, you can use GPP – the registry key to enable is:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Word\Options]
“AllowOpenInDraftView”=dword:00000001
